2016 BMW 1-Series sedan caught during tests

Although these days all the attention is focused towards the Geneva Motor Show, we take our time to get a look at the upcoming BMW 1-Series sedan, a model that has been spied during tests in more difficult road conditions that it will actually be used in the day to day commute.

The 2016 BMW 1-Series sedan will use the UKL platform which means that we will get a front-wheel drive model with the all-wheel drive system available on certain variants.

In terms of styling, expect to see a lot of similarities with the hatchback version. The current prototype is heavily covered in camouflage, therefore, we can’t see any particular design features yet.

Sharing the UKL platform with models such as the BMW 2-Series Active Tourer and Gran Tourer, engines will largely carry over. The petrol engine range should begin with a base 1.5-liter producing 136 horsepower and 220 Nm of torque.

The three-cylinder unit will be flanked by a more powerful 2.0-liter four-cylinder delivering 192 hp and 280 Nm or 231 hp and 350 Nm of torque. The diesel range should also start with a 1.5-liter unit producing 116 hp and 270 Nm of torque while two 2.0-liter diesels with 150 hp and 330 Nm or 190 hp and 400 Nm of torque will complete the range.
